Pleased to meet you!
Party In My Pants is a sister-owned and operated mini business. All our pads are handmade with love in Ashland, Wisconsin. We are a multi-talented bunch: product, graphic & web design, marketing, and sewing – we do it all. Take a minute to get to know us better! Then Click here to tour Party In My Pants headquarters and read Elka Karl's interview with Luci & Lydia.
Luci started sewing at the age of 3 and can whip up anything from a skunk costume to a wedding dress. She’s the brain behind the design of our pads! After years of frustration with conventional menstrual products, Luci sat down at her sewing machine and made her first cloth pad. She tested her creation and was so excited that she made more for family and friends. That was ten years ago and her original guinea pigs still use PIMPs. You might already know Luci from her work as a milliner, making hats under the name Alley Cat Hat Co. Or you might know Luci from her Kundalini Yoga practice as an instructor and student.
Lydia crafts the design and marketing stuff for Party In My Pants. With the help of some kind souls, she puts her writing skills to the test and writes all the copy, too. Lydia graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2007 where she studied Visual Communications and Printmaking. She interned with Chicago area non-profits, like the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation (now Active Transit) and Shedd Aquarium. Lydia is all about her Bianchi, Midwestern thrift stores, and most recently Maneki Neko. Check out her printmaking and design at: www.lydiadaum.com
Party In My Pants Headquarters
Based in Ashland, Wisconsin, Party In My Pants offices and production are housed in a turn-of-the-20th-century building called Wilmarth School. Click here to tour Wilmarth and read Elka Karl's interview with Luci & Lydia. We’re pretty proud of our home and love it when little old ladies knock on our door to tell us they once went to school here. Wilmarth is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has some of the snazziest architecture in town.
Ashland, Wisconsin is nestled at the base of Chequamegon Bay on Lake Superior. As a small town, Ashland can be pretty low-key, especially in the winter. But it’s always peaceful and beautiful, and is a wonderful place to make art, go camping, and raise a family. Summers in Ashland are as good as it gets. Weather is perfect, local organic farms are bursting with produce, and Lake Superior is stunningly beautiful.
